Post Divorce Relief; Contempt (Husband)
A husband whose ex-wife refused to transfer items to him, including title to a vacation home and a stock account, as she had been ordered to do in an earlier divorce proceeding, consulted the Firm for assistance in effectuating the divorce decree. Unfortunately, the prior attorney's draft of the decree was ambiguous, and the ex-wife refused to comply based on her interpretation of the terms. The Firm filed a contempt action against her, and the Court ruled in the Client's favor, holding her in contempt and ordering her immediate compliance. She was also required to pay the Client's attorney's fees.
